    Default At Chipotle, How Many Calories Do People Really Eat?

    At Chipotle, How Many Calories Do People Really Eat?

    http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...abt=0002&abg=0

    Most meals have more than 1,000 calories and almost a full dayís worth of sodium.

    When you step into a typical chain restaurant, you have a wide array of meal options, ranging from fairly healthful to downright gluttonous. This is particularly true at the rapidly growing type of restaurants known as fast casual, like Chipotle, where you can order a burrito many thousands of ways.

    With the help of a large sample of online orders, we set out to answer a question that piques our interest every time we walk into a Chipotle (which is a lot): What do people actually order here? How healthy is a normal Chipotle meal?

    Today, we have a ballpark estimate. The typical order at Chipotle has about 1,070 calories. Thatís more than half of the calories that most adults are supposed to eat in an entire day. The recommended range for most adults is between 1,600 and 2,400.

    This is why I cook 99.9% of my meals "Most meals have more than 1,000 calories and almost a full day’s worth of sodium". Good information.

    Depends what you get on it...

    I get:

    Chicken bowl (usually double chicken)
    Brown rice (I usually make sure they don't load it up)
    Mild salsa
    Corn
    Lettuce

    Still a ton of salt but decent calories

    Most people do not realize that sodium is good, but most people just OD on it.

    Lots of people in this forum also eat 1000+ calories in a sitting as a fairly common practice. If we're going to rage against Chipotle, it should be for not having queso to sell with their chips
